From the Sumner Chronicle, June 14, 1991:
... Dr. Van Vechten, a member of the second graduating class [of Whitworth College] lived right across from the college building. A wire had been strung between the VanVechten house. Extra eats had often been swung across this wire to the hungry boys, for midnight feeds. Halloween was prank-playing time so the boys took the crockery used for toilet purposes and slipped them out on the wire. Great was the consternation the next morning when faculty members saw this exhibition. Professor Fox took his shotgun and shot down the white owls and the handles dangled from the wire for months.
